# A propped cantilever beam is subjected to uniform load q. The beam has flexural rigidity EI = 2000 kip-ft2 and the length of the beam is 10 ft. Find the intensity q of the distributed load if the maximum displacement of the beam is δ max = 0.125 in. To determine

Intensity of distributed load

Explanation

Given Information:

The following figure is given along with relevant information,

Also EI=2000 kip-ft2, L=10 ft, δmax=0.125 in.

Calculation:

Consider the following free body diagram,

Take equilibrium of forces in vertical as,

Fy=0RA+RB=qL                      ...(1)

Take equilibrium of moments about A as,

MA=0MA+RBLqL2/2=0                     ....(2)

The shear force at distance x from point A is given by,

V=RAqx

The bending moment at distance x from point A is given by,

M=MA+RAxqx2/2

The deflection and bending moment is related by following differential equation

d2vdx2=MEI          ...
